Grundfos answers DIY SOS

The Norris Green Youth Centre in Liverpool was the setting for the biggest challenge ever to be taken on by the BBC programme DIY SOS in aid of Children in Need.

The 60-year old building that is located in one of the poorest areas in Liverpool was in a very poor state of repair when Nick Knowles and the team arrived, with just nine days to transform the premises into a centre that the local community could take pride in.

A veritable daily army of as many as 220 volunteer tradesmen from the local area joined the team to complete this task that required every aspect of the site both inside and out to be completely reconfigured - this included the central heating system.

Behind the scenes were another group of companies who supplied the goods needed to complete the job. This included Grundfos Pumps who were delighted to donate members of their circulator pump family to British Gas commercial who undertook this aspect of the work. The Grundfos pumps were supplied via BSS Liverpool.

As well as delivering a new Youth Centre that will be a safe refuge and provide many facilities and learning opportunities for the local young people for many years to come, the task also delivered over £263 k for Children in Need from text donations.

Grundfos are very proud to have played a small role in a project that provided such wide reaching benefits.
